Did you know that BlackJack is one of the oldest gums in existence as it was first introduced in 1871 and was chicle based and flavorless and it wasn't until 1884 that licorice was added (they first tried Sasparilla but it didn't taste as good as expected) as a flavor thus making it the first flavored gum in the history of candy!
It was also the first chewing gum available in individually wrapped "sticks." making this a true part of the American Candy landscape...

I've been a Black Jack fan for more years than I can remember. It always gives me a lift. Wish that stores would carry it again but am surely glad I can purchase it online!

Black Jack Gum is so hard to find but so worth the effort! Been chewing this gum for years and it tastes as good as it did the first time I tried it and that was many years ago!
